Driving on soft tires is like continuously driving up and out of a pothole.
So what’s the right pressure for my ride?
I know three ways find the right pressure without getting professional advice.
The hard way I get down on my hands and knees with a flashlight, take my bi-focal glasses off, close my left eye and squint hard with my right eye. I look at the fine print around the tire next to the wheel. Somewhere on your tire, you will see something like MAX PRESSURE 32 PSI. Yours may not be a 32.
Second hardest way Dig the OWNERS MANUAL out of the glove compartment. Find a comfortable chair in the shade. Order a cold drink and read the book. About the time the drink is empty you will find what the vehicle manufacturer says about tire pressure.
The easy way Open the driver’s door of the vehicle and look at the edge of the door that disappears when the door is closed. No not where the hinges are, look on the door where the latch is. There will be an easy to read label that tells what the recommended tire pressure is for that particular vehicle. Bingo.
Spend the price of a couple of gallons of gas on a good, easy to read, pressure gauge. Get a good small air compressor that you can use at home. These tools will pay for themselves in better gas mileage. You can be the local hero by pumping up footballs, basketballs, pool toys and water balloons.
All tires need to be kept at the right pressure for safety, long tire life and best fuel efficiency.
